Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disease in the world. Still the only major text on the subject, the completely revised and updated second edition of Parkinson's Disease: Diagnosis and Clinical Management comes at a time when specialists have made important advances in our understanding of the etiology, pathogenesis, investigation, and management of Parkinson's disease.

The book includes 23 completely new chapters, and has updated information on:

  • Genetics
  • Pathology
  • Biomarkers
  • Pathogenesis
  • Impulse control disorders in Parkinson's disease
  • Updated outcome measures
  • Complementary and alternative medicine for the treatment of Parkinson's disease

    Together the chapters form a comprehensive review of the many issues facing PD physicians today. Lucid and easily readable from beginning to end, each chapter may also stand on its own as a scholarly review of the individual subject. Each one is concisely written and heavily referenced for this purpose.

    The second edition of Parkinsons Disease: Diagnosis and Clinical Management provides a state-of-the-art review of where we've been, where we are now, and where we are going in treating this disease. (20100503)

    About the Author:

    Stewart A. Factor, DO, Professor and Director Movement Disorder Program, Department of Neurology, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia

    William Weiner, MD, Professor and Chairman, Department of Neurology, University of Maryland, Baltimore, Maryland

    Review:

    "Surprisingly, there has been no major monograph devoted to Parkinson's disease alone. Factor and Weiner fill this gap with a jumbo book containing 11 sections comprising 58 chapters by 87 contributors, all recognized authorities." -- New England Journal of Medicine

    "The book is an informative read, with a very good take on the current management of Parkinson disease...it supplants the older movement disorder texts as the one I will reach for first when reviewing a Parkinson disease topic."--Archives of Neurology

    "A good treatise as reference to trainees, and a must for researchers in PD. General neurologists will enhance the fine tuning of their prescriptions and surgeons the understanding of their interventions."--World Neurology

    "Doctors Factor and Weiner have assembled an international team of contributors to provide the reader with an up-to-date review on the multiple aspects of [Parkinson's disease]... This book is excellent, but not only to movement disorder specialists but also to Neurologists, Neurosciences researchers and Neurology residents." -- Saudi Medical Journal

    "This book contains the most updated information, from research to bedside, about Parkinson's disease...very important contribution to the field of movement disorders. It is written by many specialists who have not only the clinical experience, but also have done research in the area. The book summarizes new information from the literature and incorporates the authors' own works and experiences. Many practitioners will benefit from reading this comprehensive and up-to-date reference." -- Divine Inc.

    "...Although the scale and scope of the book is large, this gigantism does not detract from the excellent organization of the book, especially because it will serve as a reference book rich in its bibliography." --Parkinson's Disease Update "
